Abstract

The establishment of a safety culture is described as a useful way to fewer patient injuries. This includes knowledge on recommendations for patient safety, which may contribute to the implementation of a safety culture to reduce medical errors. Our survey shows the necessity need for information on patient safety and the students desire to acquire this knowledge. Specific courses on patient safety in first-year student education and then continuing in the post-university training seems to be the right way for an improved safety culture and fewer patient injuries, which should be further evaluated.
